Here's a list of aircraft which are able to tow glider or targets in BAT WAW

From stock game:
C-47 and all DC-3 variants
Pe-8
He-111
Bf-110
D3A

BAT specific as of 3.8
Lysander TT  (intended for aerial target)
TBD-1          (intended for aerial target)
A-25 Shrike  (intended for aerial target)
Ki-46 Recce  (intended for aerial target)
Caproni 210  (intended for aerial target)

BAT specific as of 3.8.2
Avro Lancaster III    (intended for Hamilcar)
Short Stirling III      (intended for Hamilcar)
Whitley V                (inteded for Horsa)
Ju-52 3m4g            (inteded for DFS-230)


BAT specific as of 3.8.3 (intended for the new Banners) 
TGA
Ar-66
Bü-131
DC-2
Fleet Fawn
Letov 328
Travel Air 4000 family
R-5
U-2
U-2T
Tiger Moth

WAW
Ar-66
Bü-131
Letov 328
R-5
U-2
U-2VS
Tiger Moth
(A)T-6 Texan

JTW
Meteor F.8
T-6 Texan
Cessna 172
U-2T
U-2VS
Yak-11


These aircraft can pull any target/glider. The "intended" is just a suggestion.
Remember to set low loads/fuel and set reasonable speeds, particularly with weaker aircraft. You can't pull a Hamilcar at 400 km/h, it will break loose. IRL it was towed at ~250 km/h. Also keep in mind, the tug must be able to maintain altitude and speed or AI will cut the towing item lose to save itself.

Well my expirement is finished; created a complete new game from the my home made DVD with 4.12.2 + BAT 4.0 and 4.1. All worked well, installation was very easy. Only hick-up was the twelve (12) hour download of BAT-v4.1_06 while other, just as big files took about 45 minutes! But that's beyond the control of the SAs team. Another big thank you for these guys.  ]salut[

O, I forgot to mention saving 130Gb on previous install files.

Thanks to all involved, the new 4.0/4.1 is most welcome and has a neat
handling in terms of simplification. Well done on this
Keep up the good work

Cheers

Why does the 4.1   here contain 7 part but the 4.1 in the 3.8 to 4.1  only has 4 parts?

The 4.1 update to 4.0 contains all DOF, TGA, and JTW content all over again, because 4.0 doesn't have any DOF, TGA, or JTW content. The 3.8.x to 4.1 update only contains the content that's changed, because the rest is already there in 3.8.

No you don't :)

If you had so much as bothered to read the posts for BAT v4.0 and BAT v.4.1 you'd know all there is to know.
These two packs replace everything that was there before.

4.0/4.1 is like the Tardis of Il-2 1946 BAT. It looks too small on the outside to contain all that went before.

But when you enter, it's all just there - plus some additional stuff!

Kudos to everyone involved in rationalising everything into this install. It's a great foundation to build on for years to come.

Good afternoon, gentlemen. I'm having some problems with the Blue Edge installer...


I've tried to run as admin, I turned off the antivirus, but the same message showed up.... Also, "Acesso Negado" means access denied..
Does anyone know what's happening??

Thanks, Paulo!

I just found out that my antivirus removed parts from the zip. 07. It didn't matter turning off the antivirus after he already removed the files...
So I downloaded part 07 alone, replaced the old one and turned off the antivirus right from the start. And yeah, it worked.

But thank you for the post, I really appreciated the help. o/

I have installed BAT4.1 .Some planes(mig2-3,A-6...) of JTW skin plainting cannot be displayed.
F16,F14,F18 can't be used.
Is there any way to fix it?
